Stitched Summer Bouquet
Sarah K. Benning is one of the artists leading the stitched houseplant trend, and her Instagram account is a must-follow for monstera lovers and cacti enthusiasts. She offers patterns on Etsy so you can try your hand at stitching her most popular designs. The current pattern is a vibrant bouquet that won’t wilt in the summer sun.
Tropical Plants Kit
Jessica Long founded Namaste Embroidery as a new mom, when she realized that stitching was a mess-free and portable replacement for her usual stress-relieving hobbies, painting and yoga. To tap into the patience-building benefits of embroidery, try one of the leaf pattern kits. Beginners can stitch around the outline of the leaves, while more advanced stitchers can fill in the forms as a meditative exercise.
“Can’t Touch This” Cactus
“Pots in a Row” Embroidery
Why invest in a set of windowsill plants that are likely to swelter in the summer sun when you can buy a row of worry-free stitched succulents? Amy Jones, the embroiderer behind the tongue-in-cheek Etsy shop Cheese Before Bedtime, specializes in hand-crafted cacti and birds with embroidered plumage, offering one-of-a-kind gifts for plant lovers and bird watchers alike.
